Australia Tour

Faster Louder have today announced doves will be touring down under late july:

Four years after they last wowed us, Mancunian mainstays Doves are headed back to Australia. FasterLouder is chuffed to be on board for this winter tour – which might even include a “yet to be announced appearance at a certain sold-out festival”.

The impetus for the return visit is Doves’ fourth (and arguably best) album Kingdom of Rust, described by FL’s reviewer as “demonstrative of a band at its peak”. They’ve twice played Splendour In The Grass, in 2002 and 2005, earning enraptured reports both times. While undoubtedly special at a festival, the trio’s indie-rock charms will only be magnified in a theatre setting.

Doves play these shows in winter, proudly presented by FasterLouder. Tickets on sale 9.00am Thursday 4 June.
